NIH Funded Study Finds New Way to Detect Breast Cancer
WEDNESDAY, August 12, 2015 (The Hill)

A National Institutes of Health-funded study published Wednesday says researchers have found a way to detect recurrent breast cancer in its early stages.

Researchers at Case Western Reserve University found they could detect fast-growing cancerous tumors using magnetic resonance imaging, or an MRI, and a special contrast solution.

“The approach may offer an improved way to detect early recurrence of breast cancer in women and men,” the NIH said about the study, which was funded through federal grants.
